The following information about Parenthood in assisted reproduction, and Adoption, is adapted by the Equality Network from articles by Caroline L S Henderson (previously at Maclay Murray & Spens LLP and now at MTM Family Law LLP) and Peter Murrin (of the Family Law Unit at Maclay Murray & Spens LLP).
Maclay Murray & Spens LLP have also provided the Equality Network with information about parenthood and guardianship, and on the importance of parents making a will, which is available at the foot of this page.
Please note that the law in this area is complex, and these notes only give an outline. It is always a good idea to get legal advice yourself from a lawyer with experience with LGBT parenting issues.
